Melbourne’s iconic venue, The East Brunswick Club in Lygon Street, will close its doors for good at the end of this summer. The current venue owners have called it a day and sold the building to new owners who will cease to operate it as a live music venue.
All shows currently booked will run as usual until March and the venue bookers are encouraging local acts who want to play the venue one last time, to get in touch asap.

Sadly, all good things must come to an end. The East Brunswick Club will officially close it’s doors at the end of this summer. Venue owners Pete and Pam Benjamin have decided to retire from the hospitality industry and have sold the building. The new owners will not continue it as a live venue.
Everyone involved with the venue is incredibly proud of what has been achieved over the last 6 or so years of live music….so many amazing shows and memories… A big thank-you goes out to all the bands that have played, promoters that have supported the East, and most importantly, all those that have been to the gigs.
Any local acts keen to play one last show in February to say goodbye to the place should get in contact soon. Shows continue as usual through Dec, Jan, Feb and until March – hope to see you there. Stay tuned for more tour and show announcements to come.
